More Gold for Golden State, as a gigantic $216 million Powerball jackpot was scooped up in sunny California recently.
Powerball once again lived up to its reputation of being a true millionaire maker. The American lottery hadn’t delivered a jackpot since September 18th, when a Columbia, South Carolina resident pocketed the gigantic $400 million prize. After many a rollover, on October 23rd, it was time for California to finally win the jackpot. Amazingly enough, this happened with the help of Powerball number 13, among the other winning numbers. Ample proof of how lucky this supposedly unlucky number can be!
Powerball jackpot lump sum value: $125 million
A lucky Golden State resident matched all six numbers, the five regular numbers and the additional Powerball, in draw number 85 on October 23rd. Those six lucky numbers were good for a jackpot prize worth $216 million! The lucky winner chose to receive this huge Powerball jackpot in a one-time, lump sum payment. His bank account will skyrocket with the addition of the $124,8 million jackpot’s cash value that remained after taxes!
